AS Roma chief Walter Sabatini insists Simon Kjaer will stay with them.

The on-loan Wolfsburg defender has been linked with a swap involving Palermo's Matias Silvestre.

"It's fantasy football," Sabatini told Media Gol. "Thinking and talking about such an operation is premature and highly unlikely.

"I have great respect for Silvestre as he is an excellent player and Palermo did well to buy him. However, Kjaer is on a path with us."
